Karan Johar is all set for the premiere of the fifth season of his successful chat show, Koffee with Karan.
Speculation was rife that the opening episode of the chat show would feature Pakistani actor Fawad Khan. According to reports, Khan will no longer open the show and has been replaced with Shah Rukh Khan, who will make an appearance on the show, along with his Dear Zindagi co-star, Alia Bhatt.
It has been speculated that the plan to feature Fawad Khan on the show was dropped in the wake of the Uri attack.
With Koffee with Karan slated to go on air in November, the show would prove to be an ideal platform for the duo to promote the Gauri Shinde film.
Dear Zindagi, which also stars Aditya Roy Kapoor, Ali Zafar and Kunal Kapoor, is slated to release on 25 November.
Official confirmation awaited.
